I Love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu But my Family Hates It!

I love BJJ training but my family hates it! What should I do?

This is the question I got from our friend Liz who is a White Belt in today’s Chewy Ramble.

I related to Liz because when I started Wrestling, BJJ and MMA. My mother was very much against the idea.

Now she was super supportive. She always had my back. But she didn’t like the idea of me fighting.

I don’t think she was against Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or MMA because she hated it, but because she was concerned for me.

I remember when I won my 1st MMA fight. I showed my mom and after seeing the fight. My mom hit me and called me mean!

And she would always ask me, “Why are you doing this?”

Now even though she didn’t like it, she respected it. And she respected it because of the hard work I put into it and the dedication she saw.

In the video I share how I believe Liz’s family will slowly begin to respect her decision to get into Brazilian Jiujitsu and grappling.

It happens overtime because they realize that it’s REAL, it’s not going away.

So Liz, I hope this video was helpful. And if you’re into BJJ and having a similar issue, I hope it’s helpful to you.
